    Trying the ISU Cards for tickets again

    Just got the email. Looks like they're going to switch over to the cards this year barring another flood destroying their equipment. Looks like they're doing it for FB and MBB. Guess this means I have to buy my fiance regular tickets to get in...

    Oh, good. You'd think with the fact that they have people monitoring these boards theyd get the idea that people think this is a horrible idea.

    My card doesn't even work when I use it for my meal plan at the dining centers. I can only imagine the things that will likely go wrong with this new "ticket" system.

    It's a good idea if they want a more accurate count of how many seats to allot for students when the south end zone project gets underway.

    Re: Trying the ISU Cards for tickets again

    "Football
    Student entrance to Jack Trice Stadium is through Gate 2. Students must present their valid ISU Card to be scanned for admission."

    That sucks that you will only be able to enter through one gate.....

    And makes it even harder for students to resell their tickets. People wonder why there are always holes in the student sections, and a big part is because its a giant pain in the *** for students vs everyone else (especially so for MBB where you cant sell a seat in the lower level without also giving them your shirt). Putting the tickets on the ISU Cards will make it even harder as you will not just be able to sell them (or even give them away) outside JTS\hilton (as i recall they have an online method, but thats not something you can do on gameday).

    If they just wanted a count, they can still scan regular tickets, which i believe they are adding to this year too (get ready for longer lines everyone). Those tickets are all identifiable so you can tell what's being used.

    Also, ISU will never get a good count anyways for student tickets as long as there are 2 general admission options (student and hillside) to get into the stadium. Especially when student tickets cost more than hillside, the smart students are buying hillside and moving into the student section.

    Thanks, I didn't see it on my initial search. At least they split the difference between the student lots and campus, that'll be quite a race up the steps
